Redmen Football Trio Sign Letters


High school seniors Kyle Fleitman, Chris Higgins and Kyle Nunez –all standouts on the varsity football team – signed National Letters of Intent on Feb. 1 for National Signing Day. The three Redmen will resume their gridiron careers this fall as they continue their educations.

Fleitman, a quarterback and free safety, will attend Marist College in Poughkeepsie, where he will major in business. As a member of the Redmen, he was named All-Long Island and All-County.

“Marist was the best fit for me, all around,” said Fleitman.

Higgins, a linebacker and tight end, will attend Stony Brook University, where he plans to major in business or physical therapy. At East Islip, he was recognized as an All-County and All-Division player.

“I fell in love with the school,” Higgins said of Stony Brook. “It’s great for friends and family to attend games, and the coaches and facilities are great.”

Nunez, an outside lineman, will also attend Stony Brook, where he plans to major in business. During his East Islip career, he earned All-State, All-Long Island, All-County and All-Division honors.

“It’s a top-notch academic and athletic school, and Stony Brook plays my style of football,” said Nunez of his choice. “It’s also close to home, so my parents can watch the games.”
